If you don’t hear much from me this month, it’s because I’m using my spare time to make Little Boy’s Halloween costume. I’ve never been very good at just throwing costumes together from stuff on hand, but I am decently good at using a sewing machine to follow a pattern. This year, that pattern is Simplicity #2788.
That’s right, if all goes well, Little Boy will be an adorably round pumpkin for Halloween. Apparently our new neighborhood is full of trick-or-treaters, so we’ll be able to get into the spirit of things a bit more than we have in the past.
Don’t ask me what my costume is going to be, because I haven’t decided. Zero-effort (i.e., costume already exists in my closet) options include cavewoman, Master’s degree graduate, calico cat, and Lieutenant Uhura from Star Trek.
What are your plans for Halloween, readers?
